The 18 Rules to Becoming a Successful Online Network Marketer

OK, so here’s the deal…

You just joined another opportunity, and you are hoping and praying this will be the ONE.

The ONE to make you wealthy…

You put all your hopes and prayers into the opportunity, the system, your upline and the company and you login in to your back office…

(When you joined, you didn’t give much thought to everything else you had going on in your life, including the other 2 opportunities, your day job, family, shopping, cleaning, house work, exercise etc…)

After logging in, you ignore the fast start and set up instructions… and instead you poke around all the training, in all the sections, in all the products and in all the components for about 30 minutes until you start to feel overwhelmed…

Then you shut it down and log out telling yourself you’ll do it tomorrow when you feel a little more fresh…

What you don’t realise is that already the excitement of joining a new opportunity is wearing off and you start to feel a little regretful…

It just dawned on you, that you have to learn a whole new topic, business and strategy and right now you just don’t have time, effort or energy to do it…

The next day comes and life happens… you need to go to work, your family need you… the boiler breaks down, you need to work on your other 2 opportunities and again you don’t do anything with your new business.

So you email your upline and ask for help…

You get NO reply…

You start to get frustrated and feel overwhelmed…

You feel helpless…

You login again… and this time you go to the fast start instructions.

You go through the first two video trainings and follow the instructions.

Your favourite TV show comes on the telly and you stop your work for the day…

The next day you pick it back up again and decide to jump to the ADVANCED trainings…

You implement a little, then start to feel overwhelmed with everything you have going on…

Nothing is working… after 7 days you have no results to show for it.

You feel you’ve wasted money…

You blame the system.

You blame your upline for not helping you.

You blame your current situation.

You blame everything other than yourself.

You QUIT.

You drop out…

You give up.

Then you repeat the process with a few differences… each time there is a pre-launch, or a new opportunity you join it, you get excited, you try it, you fail at it, it doesn’t work, you blame other people, you quit.

Repeat.

Maybe not exactly the same each time… but the main challenge is that it is always somebody else’s fault and you haven’t truly taken RESPONSIBILITY for your own success.

The TRUTH is… 99% of legitimate opportunities WORK!

There are always some people who succeed.

There are always some people who make money.

There are always some people who become WEALTHY.

But WHY them, and not you?

Because they don’t quit… they don’t give up, they don’t blame.

Instead…

They take RESPONSIBILITY.

They IMPLEMENT.

They LEARN from their mistakes.

They FOCUS.

They are DEDICATED to making it happen no matter what gets in the way.

They do whatever it takes to make it work.

They follow…

The EIGHTEEN (18) Rules to being a Successful Online Network Marketer…

Rule 1: Take Full Responsibility For Your Own Success

ONLY you can make it happen for yourself. The more responsibility you take, the FASTER you’ll have success.

Rule 2: Do Not Blame Your Sponsor or Upline. They Cannot Do It For You

It doesn’t matter if they are there or not. If they are there, don’t expect them to reach out to you first… they might have 100 people they are supporting. Instead, YOU take responsibility and reach out to them for help.

Rule 3: Follow The System First BEFORE Trying To Change It

Systems work, it is people who fail. If people are using a system that is getting results, then use it yourself first, go through the motions, learn it, implement it and only once you know it inside out, can you begin to modify it.

Rule 4: Focus on One Course Of Action Until Successful

Pick one traffic strategy, one content creation strategy, one closing strategy, one follow up strategy and master it. If you try to do too many things at the same time, none of them will work.

Rule 5: Build Up Your Own Brand First And Promote YOU Not The Opportunity

It doesn’t matter what opportunity you join, you must always brand you first… and lead with value first. This will help you attract prospects into your business much easier.

Rule 6: Relax

Eventually all the pieces will fall into place… until then laugh at the confusion, live for the moment and just know everything happens for a reason. It takes time to succeed… so don’t put too much pressure on yourself. Be like water…

Rule 7: Take At Least 4 Weeks Of 2 Hours Per Day to LEARN and IMPLEMENT The Fast Start Trainings

If you want to learn a foreign language you wouldn’t expect to walk into class, then walk out 2 hours later and be an fluent! The same is true for online marketing… it takes time to master a new subject.

Rule 8: Realise You WILL Have to Invest In Yourself

Make sure you get coaching, buy information products, attend trainings, go to live events and hang around with people more successful than you as often as you can… This will help you achieve your goals faster

Rule 9: Take Consistent ACTION Every Day

Momentum comes from taking massive action. Whenever you learn something new, make sure you IMPLEMENT it as soon as possible. When you do this you gain experience which you can pass on to other people.

Rule 10: Create Your Success Habits

Repeat the same things over and over again for just a few minutes every day until your small habits become strong ones. These become your CHOPS… kind of like a musician practices their scales every day…

Rule 11: Understand That Confusion, Frustration and Overwhelm is Part of the Process

If you don’t go through these problems and challenges yourself first, how can you ever expect to be able to offer value to help someone else overcome the same problems you had?

Rule 12: Don’t Tell Your Story Of Woe

Nobody wants to hear how much you are overwhelmed and struggling… people only want to join somebody they think can help them succeed. Don’t tell people how it is, tell them how you want it to be, as if it IS now.

Rule 13: Pour Knowledge Into Yourself Fast

The more knowledgeable you become, the more valuable you become… until eventually you have people climbing over each other wanting to work with you!

Rule 14: Attract Prospects, Do Not Chase

Don’t beg, chase or force people into joining you… instead let the people who are attracted to what you do and teach, come to you… when you do this and people are asking to speak to you and join your business… YOU have the POSTURE and everything changes.

Rule 15: Stay The Course!

You will ONLY succeed if you are committed, focused and dedicated to making it work. You can make anything work if you would only give it enough time. The reason you’ve failed up until now is you probably haven’t given it enough time… so stick with it, go through the process and become the BEST you can possibly be.

Rule 16: Don’t Beat A Dead Horse

If you can see the ship is sinking, and what you are doing 100% is not working for anyone or won’t work for you no matter what you do, then definitely consider joining someone who is having success and has a system in place to help you succeed… it’s one thing giving up after 1-2 weeks, and another realising the opportunity is never going to work…

Rule 17: Love What You Do

If you don’t love your company and the products and services, you are going to have a hard time promoting it and getting people to join your team.

Rule 18: Be Passionate

Let people see your passion, enthusiasm and excitement about what you do. The more EXCITED and PASSIONATE you are about your business, the more people will flock to you to be part of your team…

So there you go…

If you want to become wealthy and INSPIRE other people at the same time… make sure you implement the above EIGHTEEN rules into your life and business…

You can 100% do this…

You can succeed at whatever it is you are doing…

You can change your financial future…

You can change your life and many other people’s around you…

Just stick with it, stay the course and take massive ACTION!

I’ll see you on the other side…

I'm seriously COMMITTED to your success…

…and that's why I'm writing these from the HEART…

Bits and pieces…

Take the NUGGETS…

Throw out what doesn't resonate with you…

IMPLEMENT the best bits…

…and let's help CHANGE a few people's lives in the process!

Yours in Mastery,

Gavin Mountford
